Google Nexus or Pixel?
The two devices will share the same primary and face cameras. Pixel 2 Smartphones will feature IMX179 Sony’s 8-megapixel sensor at the front and the 12-megapixel Sony IMX378 sensor at the rear.
“If you’re an Android fan, ready to buy a premium phone, Pixel 2 is your answer.” I repeat: it’s by far the best Android phone I’ve ever tested. If you’re an iPhone user who thinks about changing the device, Pixel will seem physically familiar, but you will have to reset the tenacious fetters that are put on by communicating with other iPhones owners: these are things like iMessage (which is not on Google’s platform and is not foreseen in the near future).

According to news, Pixel 2 with 32GB will cost about $ 749 while the high-end model, Pixel 2 XL will cost about $ 899.
